Join us at Sopwell House, St Albans, on 28th February for our first Women in Leadership Conference. The aim of this event is to provide you with support & inspiration, the opportunity to network with peers and develop your leadership skills, and to hear from a fantastic selection of successful businesswomen and entrepreneurs.
Our closing Keynote Speaker for this Conference will be Kelly Smith MBE, the best female footballer England has ever had!
Kelly is a fantastic role-model; despite the prejudice she encountered trying to get into the male-dominated world of football, she is now a former England Captain, has been awarded an MBE and achieved every club accolade possible, including winning the Premier League with Arsenal.
Kelly is ranked the fourth-best England goal-scorer ever, beating even David Beckham (and close behind Wayne Rooney and Gary Lineker). Kelly is also a Barclays Football Ambassador for the Barclays FA Women’s Super League (the equivalent of the men’s Premier League), she says, “Football builds character, resilience and teamwork.”
Sarah Howard MBE, Chair of the British Chambers of Commerce, will be delivering one of the Conference keynote speeches.
Sarah will share details of BCC’s People Campaign, discuss the role business can play in fixing inequalities in the workplace and talk of her own experiences from her career in industry.
Sarah was President of Suffolk Chamber for three years before being elected first female Chair, BCC, in 2019. She started her career as a management consultant at KPMG moving to JP Morgan before setting up her own company, Sarand Business Software, with her partner in 1994.
The programme will focus on the experiences and challenges women have faced on their way up the career ladder, beginning with a presentation from Janet Hayes, Executive Coach, Necton Consulting, titled 'Can you have it all? Women's Transition to Leadership'. A summary of findings from her 2019 research for an MSc in Coaching & Behavioural Change at Henley Business School.
